EVALUATION OF UNDERGRADUATE FACULTY-LED STUDY-ABROAD OPPORTUNITIES AND STUDENT EXPERIENCES

M. Walker-Pickett

Saint Leo University (UNITED STATES)
Undergraduate and graduate level students often avail themselves of the opportunity to enrich their university studies with international educational travel opportunities. While semester-long and year-long study abroad programs provide longer immersion experiences, faculty led short-term study abroad experiences are increasingly common study abroad selections for undergraduate students in the U.S. These short-term experiences, typically courses of study lasting less than a semester in a foreign country, offer an accelerated curriculum enhanced by international and on-site cultural experience. This presentation addresses learning outcomes used for a faculty-led short term study abroad course in comparative criminal justice, focused on multiple sites in the United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Belgium. This presentation will offer some suggested best practices and also report findings on the educational and personal growth of the student attendees, and discuss the impact on students attending a regional catholic university.
